The Amino Group is a group of scientists trained at elite universities who assist biomedical and basic science researchers improve the logical flow, clarity, and English grammar of their manuscripts, grants, and other science-based documents to help them achieve publishing and funding success.
With the belief that innovative science by brilliant researchers should not be rejected due to language barriers and differences in writing styles, the Amino Group came together to offer superior editing and writing services to those who need it most.
Collectively, the Amino Group has expertise in a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including the physical, biological, and clinical sciences. All of our editors are native English speakers with terminal degrees and impressive publication and grantsmanship records who were trained at the Top 15 universities in the USA.
While you focus on the science, we’ll focus on the English correction and logical flow of your documents to help you achieve your scientific goals, backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
To provide you with the highest quality scientific writing services and research expertise, our editors are recruited from the Top 15 universities in the USA. They are exceptional, highly qualified technical editors and strict grammarians, and they are also considered experts in their respective fields of study.
Additionally, they must pass rigorous testing and meet several requirements. Our editors are:
- Native English speakers
- Ph.D., M.D., or Pharm.D. graduates from one of the Top 15 universities in the USA
- Researchers with proven publication records in top-tier journals
- Editors and/or peer-reviewers for top-tier journals
- Have at least 5 years of experience editing scientific documents for non-native English speakers
Collectively, our editors cover a wide range of physical, biological, and clinical sciences, and many of our editors are active scientists and physician scientists who regularly publish their own work. Moreover, our editors engage in continuing education programs by participating in publishing workshops, grantsmanship training sessions, and writing courses to stay abreast of current trends in science communication.
Lastly, every document prepared by one of our editors is carefully reviewed by a Senior Editor for quality assurance.
The Amino Group offers superior editing with exceptional customer service, backed our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
We guarantee that you will receive personal, customized service that is specifically tailored to meet your needs.

The Amino Group started as a one scientist at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University who recognized that her highly intelligent research colleagues were struggling to get their work published due to language barriers. As a native English speaker and a strict grammarian, she offered to help her colleagues polish their manuscripts by correcting the English and enhancing the logical flow and impact of their writing. These edits made the text more clear and easier for the reviewers and journal editors to read, thereby improving her colleagues’ rates of acceptance.
When she moved her work to Yale University School of Medicine, she began expanding her services to help native English speakers improve their grants and make them more attractive in our increasingly more competitive funding climate. She helped her colleagues secure R01s, F31s, F32s, and other NIH-sponsored grants as well as many other grants and fellowships from private foundations.
After the word spread that she was the common denominator amongst all the scientists experiencing a dramatic increase in their publishing and funding success, more requests came pouring in. She then enlisted the help of her equally talented colleagues at Cornell, Yale, and MIT to help her tackle the workload… and the Amino Group was born.
